First Shots with XC 50-230mm


After much pondering of the 70-300mm lens, I decided my needs as a non-professional skewed towards the shorter end of the zoom range... I had the 55-200 and liked it, but felt it was unused. So thought about it some more, had a few adult beverages, and then this showed up at my door! Instead of $800 plus shipping for the new lens, I spent $250.

Impressions of the lens: it's tiny!! Plastic everything. Picture attached. Paired excellently with the X-T2 WITHOUT the hand grip I use on the 16-55.

Post-processed in C1 with levels & sharpening. Astia. Just a random day's worth of test shots. Let me know if it's as sharp as you'd expect.
